ACCORDING TO THE first opinion poll of the autumn, the electorate’s views on Ireland’s political parties haven’t changed much since June.

The Sunday Business Post/Red C Poll shows support for Fine Gael remains at 32 per cent, while Labour’s popularity has dropped marginally to 14 per cent.

Outside the coalition, Sinn Féin climbed 2 points to reach 18 per cent support, matching that of Fianna Fáil which remained unchanged at 18 per cent.

Independents/Green/Others also fell one point to 18 per cent.

Although support for the government seems secure, barely half of Labour’s own supporters say they trust the coalition with the public finances.

Meanwhile, two thirds of all voters believe the Croke Park Agreement should be reviewed and public pay costs reduced.

The poll of more than 1,000 voters nationwide was taken on 17-19 September.
